Alex, your hero? Does he have a name?
He's... you know... an undercover cop... typical...
No, no. There is no such thing as a typical cop. In the original "Diehard," the cop is defined by an urgent need to reconcile with his wife. In, in "Dirty Harry," you have a bitter vigilante who has to find redemption in an Orwellian nightmare of thwarted individualism.
Tony. His name is Tony.

For the Top Ten junk, movies like this are worth your time
Hit and Runway has the same spirit of Good Will Hunting, and is done equally as well. Geez, movies where you come to know the characters, like them and care what happens to them -- individually and their relationship. What a concept! Sure, the urban setting of NYC is an easy mark for a story like this, but at least the main characters aren't yuppies and this movie shows real people living like real people. I thought this was going to be an indie film shot on a miniscule budget, but I never saw a shot that looked it. Everything seemed as well done as with a big budget throwaway (of which there are so many these days). I thought I might like this movie but didn't expect to love it. I loved it. Everyone involved should feel proud.
